4 Months Post Op

October 6, 2009 | |

Hello everyone!  I met with my doctor for my final post op appointment todayand he told me that he no longer needs to see me anymore.  It was a short and sweet visit.  He spent a minute feeling the achiles and told me eveything is holding up fine.  I asked him if I needed to do any more physical therapy after completing 16 sessions  and he said no, just continue to build strength in my leg and do my stretching exercises daily as part of my normal workout regimen.  Although I’ll never be 100% again, he said 12 months post op I should be fully recovered with no limitations so long as I use my common sense.  I have to say that I’m feeling pretty good.  I still need to build strength but I am pretty much back to normal.  I’m cleared to play golf again so I am going to hit the driving range later this week and hopefuly tee it up shortly thereafter.  It’s been a long and challenging recovery but I think it has turned out to be a positive experience for me and a wake up call to maintan my health.  Good luck to everyone  in your recovery.  I’ll check in every now and then.
